Australia Awards are prestigious scholarships funded by the Australian Government available for Vietnamese citizens for master’s studies at Australian universities. The awards are for government officials from central, provincial, and district-level, staff of NGOs and Vietnamese companies, academics and researchers.
Australia Awards Scholarship awardees gain a world-class education in Australia, advance their knowledge and skills, and build networks across a range of areas, including governance and economic growth, infrastructure and transport, education, gender equality, agriculture and rural development, regional stability and human rights, disability, climate change/environment, innovation, health and cyber security.
Applicants are assessed on their professional and personal leadership attributes, academic competence and their potential to impact on development challenges in Vietnam and promote relationships between Vietnam and Australia.
People with disability, ethnic minorities and people living in rural areas are encouraged to apply. A support scheme is available to assist equal participation for these applicants.
To date, the Australian Government has provided over 6,500 Australia Awards Scholarships for Vietnamese nationals to study in Australia. On their return to Vietnam, many alumni have been very successful in their careers – and are now in senior positions in Vietnam. Alumni have made substantial contributions towards Vietnam’s socioeconomic development and built invaluable lifelong networks both in Vietnam and Australia.
